Wide Throw & Swing Clear Hinges
Here at Hardwaresource.com, we have a great selection of swing clear and wide throw hinges in different sizes and finishes. Swing clear hinges are great for wheelchair access or for narrow doors which restrict the opening. Swing clear hinges have an offset pivot point that allows the door to swing completely clear of the door opening. Wide throw hinges are wider than they are tall, which moves the hinge’s pivot point outward, allowing the door to swing clear of thick jamb casing. Or say, if the door is inset into the jamb deeper than normal, e.g., a thick wall with the door installed in the middle of the jamb would require a swing clear hinge if the desired functionality would be to have the door swing open 180-degrees. So, if your application requirement is to satisfy ADA codes or simply to solve a difficult install application, then swing clear or wide throw hinges may be just right for your needs.
